Alcohol , as with most drugs, in small amounts will increase pleasure and allow for more social interaction (loss of inhibition). The trick is, know where the limits are, and in order to find the limits, you have to surpass them once in awhile, usually when you are just experimenting with it. I love a nice single malt scotch in the evening. I can sip it and enjoy the subtle flavours and smells, and have come to appreciate the work required to present such unique spirits to the discerning consumer. If you are talking about things like light beer, which is only there to make you drink more to get any taste or flavor at all, I have to quote John Oliver on the taste of one of America's favorite beers, Bud Light........... “It tastes like the flat soda that a homeless guys uses to rinse off burns.” “It’s like a liquid version of a John Mayer song.” “Bud Light tastes like the urine of a scared rabbit.” “It tastes like Robert Durst’s aquarium.” “It’s like someone drank a good Mexican beer and peed in a Bud Light bottle.” “It tastes as if a raccoon ejaculated carbonated vinegar into in old log.” There is good alcohol.........and bad alcohol, just like the people who consume it.
